If you install "gnome-python2-bonobo", does that fix it?

Comment 2 nomnex 2011-03-20 11:51:29 UTC
yes, it did it thanks. Does it apply to F-14 LXDE too?

Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2011-03-22 15:12:34 UTC
It's due to a dropped dependency in gnome-python2-gnome when it was created as a new subpackage in 2008. See bug 689836 - easy to work around in "soundconverter", but I'd like to learn why that dependency is missing.
